Dude! I can't believe you failed to note that this movie was written by none other than OSCAR WINNER JOHN SAYLES (Lone Star, 8 Men Out). He didn't write the first draft, mind you—apparently (I saw him or Dante telling this story in a documentary somewhere) the writer of the first draft (the draft that Corman presented to Dante as "filmable") had basically written JAWS, but he couldn't figure out a way to get people back into the water after the piranhas were discovered, and so this screenwriter wrote in a bloodthirsty grizzly bear that chased people through the woods until they jumped in the river to get away from it.

Um, I meant to delete one of those last two sentences before I hit Post. I'm not THAT excitable.


Wow, Paul looks JUST LIKE Will Ferrell at the end of Step Brothers, when in his psychologist's fantasy, he breaks down her door and yells:



(PS: Totally love you and everything you do, Rich.)


You gotta see James Cameron's sequel, Rich! KILLER FISH LITERALLY FLY OUT OF A CORPSE MID-AUTOPSY.


"How harrowing: stencils."

LOL I love you


I remember this movie from when I was a kid in the early 80's. Even as an 8 year old I thought it was ridiculous. We used to laugh at how they pronounced piranha like lasagna.


In Portuguese, piranha is sort of pronounced like lasagna (so that fake movie professor wasn't being so ridiculous, at least not with his pronunciation). My Brazilian husband laughs at the way we Americans pronounce it, but then again they have bizarre ways of pronouncing English words like self-service or colgate.


Is that Powers Boothe (of Deadwood fame)?!


I saw this movie on TV in the 80s when I was a kid and I LOVED IT for all the reasons you listed. Of course, I also didn't swim in a lake/pond for 2 years after that.


If I saw this movie, I don't think I would ever come near a fish again!


"The guy goes straight-up telenovela on our asses." Love you.


On the subject of awful old horror movies with ridiculous plots and creatures, have you ever seen Slugs? I'm not going to ruin the rest of the movie, but there's a scene where someone eats a salad, and then later, the slugs burst from his chest in a fountain. Watch it. It's amazing.


I am not bothered by piranhas. Those who are native to their waters swim with them.

Watch   Piranha 3D

I saw the movie Piranha last night with my friends and loved it..It is good action film.

The old movie was just fine.. minimal and full of horror.. the remake has lost its character!

We got lucky with the weather, and so many people told us we had to visit Derrynane, so we were thrilled to include it in our renewals.

The final plan to kill the piranhas involves opening smelt tanks to "pollute the bastards to death." We never find out if this works or not -- the ending is intentionally ambiguous with Dr. Meggers telling a news crew, "There's nothing left to fear," and then staring ominously into the camera, as if she herself is a piranha or maybe she's that whimsical Harryhausen-esque creature in platforms and a disguise...
